Particulates – also known as atmospheric aerosol particles, atmospheric particulate matter, particulate matter (PM), or suspended particulate matter (SPM) – are microscopic particles of solid or liquid matter suspended in the term aerosol commonly refers to the particulate/air mixture, as opposed to the particulate matter alone.

Sources of particulate matter can be. ambient air objectives for particulate matter (PM) and ozone for the medium ( – ) and long term (). While this note does not comment in a quantitative sense on the ambient air quality objectives, it does provide observations and insights on the process involved in developing longer term ambient air quality objectives for Size: 1MB.
